RE: Chord Epic speaker cable - Should I buy

I have Chord Epic on my Q500s (plus the signature links, which made a big difference), and am very happy with it When I had my CM1s, the soundstage increased, but also more cohesive, once I upgraded from Rumour to Epic.

 

In terms of the banana plugs, I would just have Chord put on their own terminations.

The good thing about this cable Chord Epic is blocking madness Bass in speakers

Does this new cable  Chord Epic should make running 100 hours

RE: Chord Epic speaker cable - Should I buy

Chord Epic is a very good cable.  It may be too good for your system.  The Chord Odyssey is half the price and will probably perform very well.  The Odyssey won many awards.

Personally, I would avoid add-on banana plugs.  Better to have them soldered onto the speaker cables by the manufacturer.  Silver is unecessary.  Gold is fine. 

I hope this helps.

I trust the original manufacturer.  They recommend what they do for a reason.

I dislike silver as it tarnishes, and if it was of the necesary quality it would cost a lot more.  However, for a few dollars why not try it for yourself?

I found the source of the problem

I got new speakers Q900 one of them takes out a metallic sound

And i replaced it

 

I tried Cables  Van Den Hul MAGNUM and Van Den Hul D-352 Very disappointing

I tried again and  Chord Epic +Odyssey

Stunning

And winning  Chord Epic  :cheers:

Thanks for helpers
